Berdych will beat Nadal in the Semis

Do not be deceived by the score line in Nadal's last two matches. His first serve is too predictable and second serve is weak and attackable. It was too bad that Vliegen could not take advantage. A player like Berdych who almost beat Nadal in Bastad in 2005 will be able to attack those serves and punish the second serves. Mark my words, Berdych will end the streak. My 2 cents.

Re: Berdych will beat Nadal in the Semis

hmm... I don't think so. Berdych looked hopeless in 1st set against Robredo today, who's much worde player than Nadal. Bold prediction anyway

Umm...not sold on that really. Tomas would have to play quite an amazing match to take down Rafa on clay. Hard courts are one thing, but ending a 64 match winning streak? Still sounds a bit ambitious.

TB will struggle to beat Soderling.

The thread starter must be a Nadal fan wanting to lower expectations

An obvious jinx attempt!

As for the statement: after what I've seen Raf doing today, I'd say NO WAY.
Birdy will have to beat Soderling first - and he has a special talent to be missing-in-action at times. First set against Robredo today?

Let Birdman get past Soderling first.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Re: Berdych will beat Nadal in the Semis

Even if Berdych is able to beat Nadal on hard ... this is clay ... and Nadal is very good on clay ... I don't think Berd can beat Nadal ... not here anyway

Re: Berdych will beat Nadal in the Semis



rafa will just take the title as he did the last 2 years! Even more easily seeing his level of play!!! The bird will be shot down by the frog anyway...

Right now nobody is able to beat rafa, he is just too good on clay...
